Former president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has called for synergy among key stakeholders in the security sector of the country.
Specifically, he said President Muhammadu Buhari, the governors, security chiefs, and other stakeholders must all work together to tackle insecurity in the country.
The former president said he believed that the president is doing his best to arrest the situation.
He said in a statement sent to Legit.ng:
“I believe that with the commitment of the governors and the Federal Government, we will be able to address the issue of security in the country.
“I believe that the President himself is not sleeping and that the governors are not sleeping as well over the insecurity challenge in the country.
“As long as the governors, the President, and all the security agencies can work together, Nigeria will be able to cross over this very ugly phase of societal evolution.”
In another report, Legit.ng had reported that Jonathan addressed the 2023 presidential topic. Recall that many people are of the opinion that he would be running for president come the next presidential election.
Jonathan stated this when he paid a condolence visit to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa at government House, Asaba, over the recent demise of Sir Okorie Okowa.
He said the rumour was a mere speculation.
